Airport Road Closure - Departures Traffic Detours Posted

Airport Road Closure - Departures Traffic Detours Posted

Beginning April 22, 2016 a temporary road closure will be in effect at the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) for ALL Upper Level Roadway Departures Traffic. The road closure will be posted and detour signs will direct all vehicles to drop off passengers flying out on the Lower Level Arrivals Roadway during this time.

The Upper Level Departures Roadway closure is necessary for planned rehabilitation to the elevated roadway that traverses the front of the passenger terminal.

Traffic patterns to the Airport Terminal will be modified during this project, however the Airport Terminal & Airport Parking will be accessible to passengers from Brooks Avenue at all times.

Elevators and Escalators are located near each Lower Level entrance for passenger access to the ticketing lobby. Skycap assistance will also be available for departing passengers on the lower level roadway and to provide wheelchair assistance.

Airport Valet Parking Drop Off & Pick Up will occur on the Lower Level Arrivals roadway during this period. Passengers who park in the Long Term Ramp Garage will still be able to access the ticketing lobby via the elevated walkway during this period.

As always, passengers are reminded to arrive at the Airport at least 90 minutes prior to their departure times and to follow detour signage during this period.

It is anticipated the upper level departures roadway closure will be in effect for approximately six weeks once work commences.
